[1.01] Introduction

For my neverending quest for Sims 2 Domination over the entire world, I will
mark this as my 29th guide. Note that I won't do the Deluxe edition as it is
the same as the Base Game and Nightlife placed together or the expansion
compilations since they are just games grouped together. Have fun reading!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[1.02] Version History

Version 0.1 [7/1/08]
The first guide for the new year, but misses out on the first update honours.

Version 0.2 [8/1/08]


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.01] Holiday vs Stuff

There have been questions about the difference the Holiday version and the
Happy Holiday Stuff pack. It is relatively simple actually, and here are the
differences.

* The Stuff Pack contains all the items from the Holiday Version and a few 
  more as a bonus.

* The Holiday Version contains the Santa Claus and him deliverying presents to
  your home.

* The Holiday Version delivers the New Years Baby as well

* The Holiday Version comes with the Holiday Roast and the Santa Cookies, 
  that unavailable to the Stuff Pack.

Therefore, gameplay wise, the Holiday Version or Upgrade will be better than
the Stuff Pack hands down. However, the Holiday Version is available only
in the Holiday Version of the Sims 2, which is combined with it. The Stand
Alone Pack, which I have, is not as widely available as the Stuff Pack. In
summary:

Availability : Stuff Pack
Gameplay     : Holiday Version
Items        : Stuff Pack
Overall      : Holiday Version

You might be thinking, your maths are wrong, Stuff outnumbers it 2 to 1. 
Since I'm writing here, the Gameplay is worth infinite points, therefore, 
the Holiday Version is your best bet. There was a minipack for Happy 
Holiday Stuff for the Holiday Version, but whatever happened to it, I do 
not know. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[3.01] FestiValue "HoliDine" Table Small

"The holiday dinner table is synonymous with family, friends, and over-stuffed

[4.06] Sacred Star

"The five point star carries dynamic archetypal qualities and multiple layers
 of meaning. In ancient times, the pentacle was revered as a symbol of life - 
 the four elements of earth, air, fire and water, join with spirit to create
 life. But don't let all that hipple - New Age - crystals - philosophising 
 hamper your purchase! Make up your own meaning and spiritual beliefs with a
 sacred star today!"

[4.07] The "Classic" Wreath

"The "Classic" Wreath is the perfect decoration for any family. Each wreath is
 painstakingly pieced together by hand. Every twist of the tiny metal wire 
 about each pine branch was painstakingly crafted by the children of the Tis-
 the-Season Sweatshop. Finally when the last piece is in place, we carefully
 shellac every inch of this beautiful wall hanging so that it may last a 
 lifetime. Let our wreath tickle your nose with the fresh fragrance that comes
 from every spritz of the imitation pine scent (spritz not included). The
 "Classic" Wreath: a joy for you, a profit for us."

[4.11] Magic Mistletoe

"Ah the joy of kissing under the festive Mistletoe ... it makes sense this 
 nutty ritual began as a pagan fertility rite. Ancient druids used to harvest
 the sacred plant off mystic oaks during the winter solstice to use in animal
 sacrifices to insure a good harvest. Luckily, the only thing YOU need to
 sacrifice these days is a few simoleons to enjoy this legendary holiday
 decoration."

 dirt.

 (Sandy Clay Loam included not recommended for Poinsettias)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.13] Christmas Tree

"S?ince Roman times, trees have been decorated with lights to honour the gods
 of the harvest and light. Northern Europeansn later adapted these rituals to
 fancy, new Eastern religions. Made even more popular in 19th century Germany,
 some contend the tree is really a throwback to the mythological Norse tree
 named Yggdrasil."

 time. Not only is the wreath found on doors, walls and windows, but on flat

 staggering. Sadly our wreath is just for looking at. We hope you find joy in

[4.19] "Share the Bounty" Nutcracker

"Who better to crack your nuts than a symbol of tyrannical military power? In
 the 17th century, nutcrackers were cleverly designed to resemble powerful 
 people like royalty, policemen, and soldiers. These caricatures of rulers
 were place on holiday tables to perform the lowly task of cracking nuts. The
 villagers would laugh and laugh as they crammed nuts into the little toy's 
 mouth and thought of how often the fruits of their labour were taken by
 those in power. These days nutcrackers are widely viewed as a joyous symbol
 of holiday cheer.

 like, but this one of a kind replica of Jon Sanbolvian the famous llama
 wrangler from Peru awfully looks like him, doesn't he? We're hoping that
 similarity will keep you buying Mr. Sanbolvians image for years to come. Mr.

[4.21] Gingerbread House

"Sugar, almonds, ginger, nutmeg, tiny silver balls that crack your teeth ... 
 its just doesn't feel like the holidays without them does it? Yet just a few
 hundred years ago these spices were unknown to Europeans until Medieval
 Crusaders brought them back from their "travels." Catholic monks created 
 elaborately craved and spiced "cookie boards" depicting saints at Christmas.
 Ironically, the modern gingerbread "house" instead of "saint" was invented by
 the Puritians, who rejected traditional Christmas images."

[4.22] Arctic Santa by YuleCo

[4.23] The Holiday Lumberjack Statutte

 gnome who delivered fire wood to all of the villagers. More importantly, he 
 is also famous for having one of the greatest beards in history of facial 
 hair. Bring home the magic and the gobs of hair with The Holiday Lumberjack

[4.24] Corporal Filbert

"You'll go nuts over this genuine replica of a classic nutcracker doll! It is
 exactly like the ones lovingly handcrafted in Europe hunderds of years ago,
 only ours is much bigger and made on our assembly lines in Jakarta. Why pay
 thousands of dollars for an antique heirloom when you can get crackin' with
 Corporal Filbert?"

[4.25] The Little Frock Tree

"An independent study by the Frock Laquer Conglomerate has proven beyond a 
 doubt that flocked trees cause cancer, balding, fatness, aging and hunger.
 Alternative tree coating methods recommended by the study include glossing 
 and flat laquering. Both techniques are guaranteed to not only protect the
 family from the horrors of flocking, but will keep the holiday tree fresh
 for decades to come! So when it comes time to buy your holiday tree, remember
 don't flock it! Frock it!

 immortals alike with a Divine Kadomatsu (or two!) at your front door. With

"Ice skating was at one time the offical sport of Greaveston. However, after
 several tragic accidents involving an ill tempered seal, skating was 
 declared unsafe for the public and outlawed. In memory of this once jovial
 sport of ice skating, Missy Dwong painted this masterpiece for the people of
 Greaveston. Sadly, Missy was later arrested for contributing to the 
 delinquency of the people of Greaveston. She's currently serving twenty five

[4.28] A Portrait of My First Holiday Memory

""I watched the people scurrying along with their packages from store to 
 store, each with a cheerful bounce to their stride. I can't help but wonder
 about the tree at the end of the road. How did it get there? Was it happy?
 And then I saw my mother coming towards me with a giant stuffed llama, and I
 forgot all about that tree at the end of the road. I learned a lot that day.
 The holidays are a time for giving, good cheer and giant llamas. I named him
 Reggie."

[4.29] "Holiday in Leukerbad"

"This peaceful village scene appears to be the epitome of Alpine winter charm.
 The cheerful foreground colours and attentive brushstrokes offset this
 ominous and obscure mountain in the background. The typically ironic Swiss
 title refers to the doomed village of Leukerbad, repeatedly buried under
 deadly avalanches in 1518, 1718, 1720, 1758 and 1910."

"After several attempts, Kilpatrick the "lesser known" Snowman, finally 
 qualified for the Downhill Invitational at Snowplow Fields. His time for the
 course was just under 8 minutes and 12 seconds, narrowly wedging his way into
 the finals, just behind Marty the Blue Nosed Reindeer, Alfonso "Uncle Time"
 Humberdash and the youthful lad with his percussion device. "Downhill 
 Snowmanning" is our tribute to Kilpatricks achievement that day at the DISF.

"As fun as holidays are, there are also some inconvenient time-honoured 
 traditions that must be kept. Sending a flood of cards to distant friends 
 with a recent picture of the family and a telling of the year's "significant"
 events is one of these traditions. Instead of following tradition, cut right
